Competition #17 - Weather
« on: April 04, 2011, 14:05 »
Spring has sprung and we've survived the winter, which really was tough last year. So this competition is about the weather.

It could be anything from your chooks in the winter snow to your seedlings popping up in spring or plants wilting in the summer sunshine (surely we had one day of sun!!) Just so long as it is related to the weather and gardening or poultry keeping

We've got prizes! The Weather Club are offering three FREE annual memberships (worth 25 each).

Membership to theWeather Club makes for the perfect present for weather lovers and those after a more interesting gift to give to their friends and loved ones, whilst also raising money for charity.

Not only a one off gift, theWeather Club has found a wonderful way to help spoil someone special whilst also ensuring a year long weather adventure.  At only 25, this gift membership includes a striking Galileo thermometer, exclusive membership card, subscription to quarterly magazine 'theWeather' - packed full of weather related news and features, a set of weather postcards, a collectable A-Z of weather terminology, access to events and weather forums and a great range of discounts on weather related products for the year.

theWeather Club is a charity organisation run by the Royal Meteorological Society  to advance the understanding of weather and climate through education and participation. To purchase a gift membership package or voucher, visit www.theweatherclub.org.uk/shop or call 0845 604 8139.  

This competition will run until the evening of Sunday 1st May 2011

The simple rules:

  • You can enter one photograph into the competition which should be no more than 640 pixels wide.
  • It can be anything you want that is weather related and relevant to gardening or poultry keeping!
  • It should be accompanied by a short title and some description.
  • The competition is open to all "Full Members" i.e. those with more than 50 posts.
  • At the closing date we will add a poll for members to vote on and the most popular photos will be the winners.
  • The winners will receive a prize as listed above and the winning photo may be placed in a permanent photo gallery along with the best runners up.
  • Closing Date for Entries: Sunday 1st May 2011 when voting will be allowed by all members for a week.

Rumple's first snow experience

Rumple, the Modern Game cockerel, is not too sure about this cold white stuff.  Probably hoping one of those girls would get a move on and be the first to brave it.

If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!
